Paper SubmissionsProspective paper authors are invited to submit one or more detailed extended abstracts by October 16, 2017.

Depending on program needs, some prospective paper authors may be asked to present a poster in lieu of an oral paper presentation. The abstract should include the authors(s) title, name, address, phone, email and organizational affiliation within the page limit. Attached to this should be a one page or shorter biography of the presenting author.
